Delight is everywhere

I was going to talk about how busy today was. But it was a 
wonderful day, so that makes no sense. I set my timer
for an hour and worked on my taxes. I sprinted into the studio and 
did more work on my very complex painting, which I am loving,
so that's good.  And then we went to the park -- and had a super
walk. The trees are just coming out and are the most beautiful
green.  Magnolia trees are blooming in every neighbourhood.

While we were at there, I took tons of photos for reference because
the clouds in the sky over the lake were acting like clouds posing
for scenes.  I told Steven yesterday that if we went to the lake I'd
take a kit of extra clothes in case it got cold.  In the downtown
city many people were in shorts. Then the temperature started
dropping, and at the lake I added socks, a sweater, and my winter coat
 -- and hey that was perfect.

It was so beautiful.  The weather was ramping up for
a rain storm, and the waves were high and loud. Gorgeous. We loved
it. Now day is done. I'm sharing a painting from 2019, when
it seems we had exactly the same bizarre weather changes
as today. And it is raining as I write this.

Have a loving your life day.
